Catholic English Bibles

Question:

Assuming the English Catholic Bible is based on the Vulgate, what is the most accurate interlinear Vulgate/English version?

Answer:

The USCCB has several approved Catholic Bibles in English. Most, however, are based on the Greek and Hebrew versions of Scripture.

There is no single version of the Vulgate. St. Jerome’s work was revised over the centuries, and many copies of Latin translations of Scripture exist.

A long-approved English translation of the Latin Vulgate is the Douay-Rheims Bible, though versions published after the year 1750 do make use of some Greek and Hebrew manuscripts. Another version would be the Knox Bible, though this too makes some use of Hebrew and Greek manuscripts.
