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 may be constructed by lowering the submediant of the mixolydian mode.[3][verification needed]
