Does anyone know of a way to search for Bible translations where the word is an inserted word which is not part of the original language.

For instance, the NKJV uses the word "of" in Gen 2:7 just after man and the word is italicized. Is there a way I could do a search for italicized words in the NKJV to see other times where the word of has been inserted to clarify meaning?

You can't search directly for italics but we can make use of the fact that NKJV is a Reverse Interlinear as the general topic has been discussed here.

For the Strong's method to work in the OT  use the Hebrew range 1 - 8674 ie.

of NOTEQUALS <H1-8674>

However it will show more than what NKJV alludes as inserted e.g. Gen 1:28 "the fish of" where the preposition "of" is associated with the noun. Because of the nature of Hebrew the results will require some interpretation and there will be some false positives.
