'Sake' in the Bible

The whole imperial guard and everyone else knows that I am in prison for the sake of Christ,

yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake.

And since I am sure of this, I know that I will remain and continue with all of you for the sake of your progress and joy in the faith,

because it was for the sake of Christ's work that he came so near death, hazarding, as he did, his very life in endeavouring to make good any deficiency that there might be in your gifts to me.

But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ.

What is more, I continue to consider all these things to be a loss for the sake of what is far more valuable, knowing the Messiah Jesus, my Lord. It is because of him that I have experienced the loss of all those things. Indeed, I consider them rubbish in order to gain the Messiah
