Job’s Sin

From the Bible: Job 2:3 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

Hannah’s explanation is pretty good. But the main idea relevant to this discussion is that Satan has to ask permission of God for anything he does, at least outside certain prescribed limits.

Job had his own lessons to learn, the biggest one, that many righteous people have to learn. He was “righteous in all his ways”, but he had an attitude, self-righteousness, which he finally admits toward the end of the book, after complaining up to then that he was unjustly suffering. That of course is the biggest sin.
