The hebrew word for "Law" is Torah. This is well known... what isn't as well known is what this word means in hebraic understanding.
"Torah" comes from the root word "Yarah" which means "to throw" or "to shoot" something (specifically at a target). Torah a noun is taken from the hiphil verb conjugation of yarah which is "Horah", meaning "To teach". So the Torah is "the teaching" or "instruction" of Yahweh. According to 1John 3:4 sin is "transgressing/being without the Torah" or "anomia" in greek.
(This is why the antichrist is called the "man of sin" in 2 Thess. 2:3 and Daniel 7:25 says that he will "change times and the law".)
So, sin = being against the instruction (Torah) of Yahweh.
I think that the most important thing to see in all of this is that our Father's Word is His will for our lives; a light to our path and guide to our life here on earth. Interestingly, one of the main words for Torah in Aramaic (sister language of Hebrew) is Oorah - which is taken from the word for "light".
However, from our youth we've been unable to escape that dreaded state of sinfulness that separated us from the Father and placed us within the kingdom of darkness. The way to freedom - walking in God's instructions in love - is through the Living Word Yeshua, who lifts us from the impure kingdom that we couldn't free ourselves from. He places our feet on a sure path and will walk us Home if we stay with Him.
