Then the Lord said to Satan, “… And he (Job) still maintains his integrity, though you incited me against him to ruin him without any reason.” Job 2:3
If you read this verse without knowing the first chapter of Job, you would assume God brought devastation into Job’s life. It reads like God was angry with Job and ruined him, even though it was actually Satan who caused Job’s demise. However, God accepts blame. He wasn’t at fault and under no obligation, but in Jesus’ death on the cross, God accepts responsibility for sin and suffering being in the world.
