For heaven’s sake

뜻:a very strong form of ‘please’
제발, 아무쪼록 (뒤에 오는 명령형을 강조, 하지만 화났을 때도 자주 사용한다.)
*a very strong form of “please”. But we often use it almost as an expletive or something we say when we are angry.

‘for God’s sake’ or ‘for Christ’s sake’
Other similar idioms are “for the love of God” or ‘for crying out loud’ but these are more used for emphasis without any particular meaning.

For heaven’s sake don’t do that again! Or I shall get very angry.
(제발 두번 다시 그러지마. 화낼 거야.)

For heaven’s sake, stop talking about Terry!
(부탁이니까 테리얘기는 그만 좀 해.)

For heaven’s sake, why didn’t you call?
(도대체 왜 전화 안 했어?)
