Adonai malakh mode on D.

In music, the Adonai malakh scale is a musical mode used in Jewish music.

"Adonai malakh" ("God is King"), a line from Psalm 93, is set using the Adonai malakh scale at the close of the introduction to the Kabalat Shabat (Friday evening synagogue service).[2]

It adds flats as it goes higher, and its pitch set is similar to the Persian Dastg?h-e M?hur and Russian Obikhod scale.
