But there are still expenses associated with creating the translation.
Salaries of the translators, big expensive Greek and Hebrew dictionaries,

You can't expect someone to shell out $1,000,000 or so making a new
translation, and then giving it away for free can you?  Even if the Holy
Spirit gave the inspiration for each and every word, those words were still
paid for with cold hard cash, that needs to be recovered via royalties.
