Since it is commonly held that Psammetichus II abstained from aggressive activity against Babylonia, I want to reconsider his policy (595-589 B.C.) toward the Levant and the Babylonian Empire. No new data exists, leaving us only the (re)interpretation of the facts. In this article I shall review:

1. The Babylonian presence and activity in the Levant;

2. The anti-Babylonian conference in the fourth year of Zedekiah, King of Judah (most probably 593 B.C.);

3. Alleged Judean involvement in Psammetichus II's campaign against Kush;

4. Psammetichus II's campaign to Kush in his third year of reign (593 B.C.);

5. The Effect of the Egyptian Campaign to Kush on the Levant;

6. The campaign of Psammetichus to the land of Kharu in his fourth regnal year.
