"Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die." Job 2:9 KJV

At Job's time of adversity, suffering, vulnerability, and weakness was a time that Job discovered who or whom was not for him, even more importantly who in his life was not for God and not supportive of him keeping his faith in God. Earlier in Job's life, when Job appeared to be blessed and prosperous, no one questioned Job's faithfulness or integrity. While Job was being tested he got to see the faithfulness and integrity of others and who the adversary was able to work thru to come against his faith. Later in the book of Job, after God tested Job, God restored Job and placed family and friends that were a blessing to him, all because God's servant Job was faithful during his time of testing.

I believe Job knew he was being tested, since only Job knew if he had sinned and Job also believed God was good and faithful and was not punishing him but testing his faith. His wife just wanted an end to the suffering and wanted Job to sin, by cursing God and giving up on life, so that he could die. After Job lost so much I believe he realized that all he really had and had control of was his integrity.
