I want to sort by key in html table in JS

For ex: My table
Column 1     column2
    A	     vini
    B	     Kiru
    c	     vini
    D        Loki

if my key word is vini

then result should be in this way (i.e first rows should be the key word and followed by other words)
Column 1     column2
    A	     vini
    c	     vini
    B	     kiru
    D        Loki 

please help me

Is doing this sorting before binding the data an option for you?

no after binding a table i'm giving a key word
based on that again it should bind as the above example

function filter(term, _id, cellNr) {
var suche = term.value.toLowerCase();
var table = document.getElementById(_id);
var ele;
for (var r = 1; r < table.rows.length; r++) {
ele = table.rows[r].cells[cellNr].innerHTML.replace(/<[^>]+>/g, "");
if (ele.toLowerCase().indexOf(suche) >= 0) {
table.rows[r].style.display = '';

table.rows[r].style.display = 'none';
