Clever Biblical victim's spoken (4)


I believe the answer is:


'clever' is the definition.
(able can mean skilled or talented)

'biblical victim's spoken' is the wordplay.
'biblical victim' becomes 'abel' (I've seen this in another clue).
'spoken' indicates a 'sounds like' (homophone) clue.
'abel' is a homophone of 'ABLE'.

(Other definitions for able that I've seen before include "Skilled" , "Having the skills and qualifications required" , "See 10" , "Of high proficiency" , "... was I ere I saw Elba (palindrome)" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
