We can briefly summarize Psalm 41 by noting it's genre first of all. Psalm 41 is a lament psalm.

  1. In it, we’ll see David pronounce a blessing on those who consider the poor.
  2. Then he gives a lament that even though he does consider the poor, he himself is being mistreated and afflicted.
  3. Then he asks God to raise him up.
  4. He expresses confidence in God’s hearing him, and then ends this psalm with a praise. 

That's the summary of Psalm 41 in brief!
