Matt. Check out In association with the USCCB they have started a bible search engine in English and Spanish. Don't see the translation they are using.

I checked out this bible search engine on catholic. net, and it appears to be using the NAB, which would make sense since the USCCB was involved in this project. I'll use it for my bible study classes.
