Found priest quiet, nursing wound (9)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'found' is the definition.
'priest quiet nursing wound' is the wordplay.
'priest' becomes 'eli' (I've seen this before).
'quiet' becomes 'sh'.
'nursing' indicates putting letters inside.
'wound' becomes 'stab' (I've seen this before**).
'elish' placed around 'stab' is 'ESTABLISH'.
(Other definitions for establish that I've seen before include "Settle", "Set up or bring into existence", "Verify", "Found - this sable (anag)", "Found - his stable (anag)", "Found or authenticate", "form", "Institute; set up", "Set up a business or prove to be true" and "Set up or settle firmly in place".)
