What is the order rule of multiple picklist values?

When I try to SELECT global multiple picklist values by SOQL which is used in custom object, the order of multiple values is not same as the order of global multiple picklist values, and does not look same as alphabetic order.

    Have you tried includes? developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.soql_sosl.meta/… – Pranay Jaiswal Jul 22 '19 at 9:51
  • Are you talking about the order in which selected values for a multi-select picklist appear in the field on a record? The order is not determinable. If a user selects 2 values and saves, and then edits and selects a 3rd value and saves, the new value is appended to the end of the semicolon-delimited list, regardless of the order of the values in the UI or in global picklist value setup. – Thomas Taylor Jul 22 '19 at 12:09
