He also provided Yom Kippur, and redemption money, and the results of 
prayer and supplication


  Dear Liz

  Forgiveness of sins is what we all need, and God provided the sacrificial
  cultus to effect this for his faithful people. He formed them for Himself;
  they were to show forth his praise (verse 21). But instead, they had made a
  sort of "sin now, pay later" tariff out of the sacrificial system. It was
  not intended to be misused in this fashion. Isaiah castigates the people back
  in chapter 1:10-15 for this very thing. Their worship is just a "trampling of
  My courts".
