    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 102:19

    For he hath looked down - This, with the three following verses, seems to me to contain a glorious prophecy of the incarnation of Christ, and the gathering in of the Jews and the Gentiles to him. The Lord looks down from heaven, and sees the whole earth groaning and travailing in pain; his eye affects his heart, and he purposes their salvation.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 102:19

    For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary - From his high and holy dwelling-place, in heaven. The word here rendered "looked down," means, in Kal, to lay upon or over; then, in Niphil, to lie out over anything, to project; and then, to bend forward. It then means to bend or incline forward with an intention to look at anything, as from a window, Genesis 26:8. Compare Psalm 14:2. See also Psalm 85:12, note; 1 Peter 1:12, note.

    From heaven did the Lord behold the earth - Did he look abroad over all the world.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 102:19

    102:19 Looked - From heaven.
