Tease upper-class Head of Accounts who's up before Judges (6)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'up before judges' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this definition defines the answer.

'tease upper-class head of accounts' is the wordplay.
'tease' becomes 'josh' (I've seen this in another clue).
'upper-class' becomes 'u' (similar in meaning).
'head of' says to take the initial letters.
The first letter of 'accounts' is 'a'.

'who's' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for joshua that I've seen before include "Sixth book of the Old Testament" , "Judges found next to this" , "Israelite leader in Old Testament who fought the battle of Jericho" , "He succeeded Moses and fought the battle of Jericho" , "6th Old Testament book" .)
