When I compare Job 4:16 in KJV 1900, NASB95, ESV, NET, NIV84, and LEB, I notice that in the KJV 1900, which is my base text, there's a word "image" which is rendered in NASB95, ESV, NIV84, and LEB as "form." I would expect "form" to appear in blue and bold in those versions because it's a different English word in place of "image" but the word "form" is not blue and it's not bold.

This is happening because the text in KJV 1900 is "form thereof: An image". The other Bibles see this as "form" being the same, while "thereof: An image" is getting removed compared to the base text.

Turning on the "Show base text" option can help with understanding this.

The Interlinear mode also has a better alignment here:
