I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too,
when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV, the following verses were given in the context of prophets from ‘Genesis’ till ‘Nehemiah’ (KJV).

Isa 29:10 For the LORD hath poured out
upon you the spirit of deep sleep,
and hath closed your eyes:
the prophets and your rulers,
the seers hath he covered.

Isa 30:10 Which say to the seers, See not;
and to the prophets, Prophesy not
unto us right things,
speak unto us smooth things,
prophesy deceits:

Jer 2:8 The priests said not,
Where is the LORD?
and they that handle the law knew me not:
the pastors also transgressed against me,
and the prophets prophesied by Baal,
and walked after things that do not profit.

Jer 2:26 As the thief is ashamed when he is found,
so is the house of Israel ashamed;
they, their kings, their princes,
and their priests,
and their prophets,

Jer 2:30 In vain have I smitten your children;
they received no correction:
your own sword hath devoured your prophets,
like a destroying lion.

Jer 4:9 And it shall come to pass at that day, saith the LORD,
that the heart of the king shall perish,
and the heart of the princes;
and the priests shall be astonished,
and the prophets shall wonder.

Jer 5:13 And the prophets shall become wind,
and the word is not in them:
thus shall it be done unto them.

Jer 5:31 The prophets prophesy falsely,
and the priests bear rule by their means;
and my people love to have it so:
and what will ye do in the end thereof?

Jer 7:25 Since the day that your fathers came forth
out of the land of Egypt unto this day
I have even sent unto you
all my servants the prophets,
daily rising up early
and sending them:

Jer 8:1 At that time, saith the LORD,
they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah,
and the bones of his princes,
and the bones of the priests,
and the bones of the prophets,
and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
out of their graves:

Jer 13:13 Then shalt thou say unto them,
Thus saith the LORD,
Behold, I will fill all the inhabitants of this land,
even the kings that sit upon David’s throne,
and the priests,
and the prophets,
and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, with drunkenness.

Jer 14:13 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD!
behold,  the prophets say unto them,
Ye shall not see the sword,
neither shall ye have famine;
but I will give you assured peace in this place.

Jer 14:14 Then the LORD said unto me,
The prophets prophesy lies in my name:
I sent them not,
neither have I commanded them,
neither spake unto them:
they prophesy unto you a false vision
and divination,
and a thing of nought,
and the deceit of their heart.

Jer 14:15 Therefore thus saith the LORD
concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name,
and I sent them not, yet they say,
Sword and famine shall not be in this land;
By sword and famine
shall those prophets be consumed.

Jer 23:9 Mine heart within me is broken
because of the prophets; all my bones shake;
I am like a drunken man,
and like a man whom wine hath overcome,
because of the LORD,
and because of the words of his holiness.

Jer 23:13 And I have seen folly
in the prophets of Samaria;
they prophesied in Baal,
and caused my people Israel to err.

Jer 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem
an horrible thing:
they commit adultery,
and walk in lies:
they strengthen also the hands of evildoers,
that none doth return from his wickedness:
they are all of them unto me as Sodom,
and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

Jer 23:15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts
concerning the prophets;
Behold, I will feed them with wormwood,
and make them drink the water of gall:
for from the prophets of Jerusalem
is profaneness gone forth into all the land.

Jer 23:16 Thus saith the LORD of hosts,
Hearken not unto the words of the prophets
that prophesy unto you:
they make you vain:
they speak a vision of their own heart,
and not out of the mouth of the LORD.

Jer 23:21 I have not sent these prophets,
yet they ran:
I have not spoken to them,
yet they prophesied.

Jer 23:25 I have heard what the prophets said,
that prophesy lies in my name,
saying, I have dreamed,
I have dreamed.

Jer 23:26 How long shall this be
in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies?
yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

Jer 23:30 Therefore, behold,
I am against the prophets, saith the LORD,
that steal my words every one from his neighbour.

Jer 23:31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD,
that use their tongues,
and say, He saith.

Jer 25:4 And the LORD hath sent unto you
all his servants the prophets,
rising early and sending them;
but ye have not hearkened,
nor inclined your ear to hear.

Jer 26:5 To hearken to the words
of my servants the prophets,
whom I sent unto you, both rising up early,
and sending them, but ye have not hearkened;

Jer 26:7 So the priests and the prophets
and all the people heard
Jeremiah speaking these words
in the house of the LORD.

Jer 26:8 Now it came to pass,
when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking
all that the LORD had commanded him
to speak unto all the people,
that the priests
and the prophets
and all the people took him,
saying, Thou shalt surely die.

Jer 26:11 Then spake the priests
and the prophets unto the princes
and to all the people,
saying, This man is worthy to die;
for he hath prophesied against this city,
as ye have heard with your ears.

Jer 26:16 Then said the princes
and all the people unto the priests
and to the prophets;
This man is not worthy to die:
for he hath spoken to us
in the name of the LORD our God.

Jer 27:9 Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets,
nor to your diviners,
nor to your dreamers,
nor to your enchanters,
nor to your sorcerers,
which speak unto you, saying,
Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon:

Jer 27:14 Therefore hearken not
unto the words of the prophets that speak unto you,
saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon:
for they prophesy a lie unto you.

Jer 27:15 For I have not sent them, saith the LORD,
yet they prophesy a lie in my name;
that I might drive you out,
and that ye might perish, ye,
and the prophets that prophesy unto you.

Jer 27:16 Also I spake to the priests
and to all this people,
saying, Thus saith the LORD;
Hearken not to the words of your prophets
that prophesy unto you,
saying, Behold, the vessels of the LORD’S house
shall now shortly be brought again from Babylon:
for they prophesy a lie unto you.

Jer 27:18 But if they be prophets,
and if the word of the LORD be with them,
let them now make intercession to the LORD of hosts,
that the vessels which are left in the house of the LORD,
and in the house of the king of Judah,
and at Jerusalem, go not to Babylon.

Jer 28:8 The prophets that have been before me
and before thee of old prophesied both
against many countries,
and against great kingdoms, of war,
and of evil,
and of pestilence.

Jer 29:1 Now these are the words of the letter
that Jeremiah the prophet sent
from Jerusalem unto the residue of the elders
which were carried away captives,
and to the priests,
and to the prophets,
and to all the people whom Nebuchadnezzar
had carried away captive from Jerusalem to Babylon;

Jer 29:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts,
the God of Israel;
Let not your prophets and your diviners,
that be in the midst of you,
deceive you,
neither hearken to your dreams
which ye cause to be dreamed.

Jer 29:15 Because ye have said,
The LORD hath raised us up prophets in Babylon;

Jer 29:19 Because they have not hearkened
to my words, saith the LORD,
which I sent unto them by my servants the prophets,
rising up early and sending them;
but ye would not hear, saith the LORD.

Jer 32:32 Because of all the evil of the children of Israel
and of the children of Judah,
which they have done to provoke me to anger, they,
their kings,
their princes,
their priests,
and their prophets,
and the men of Judah,
and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Jer 35:15 I have sent also unto you
all my servants the prophets,
rising up early and sending them, saying,
Return ye now every man from his evil way,
and amend your doings,
and go not after other gods to serve them,
and ye shall dwell in the land
which I have given to you and to your fathers:
but ye have not inclined your ear,
nor hearkened unto me.

Jer 37:19 Where are now your prophets
which prophesied unto you, saying,
The king of Babylon shall not come against you,
nor against this land?

Jer 44:4 Howbeit I sent unto you all
my servants the prophets,
rising early and sending them, saying,
Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate.

Lam 2:9 Her gates are sunk into the ground;
he hath destroyed and broken her bars:
her king and her princes are among the Gentiles:
the law is no more;
her prophets also find no vision from the LORD.

Lam 2:14 Thy prophets have seen vain
and foolish things for thee:
and they have not discovered thine iniquity,
to turn away thy captivity;
but have seen for thee false burdens
and causes of banishment.

Lam 4:13 For the sins of her prophets,
and the iniquities of her priests,
that have shed the blood of the just in the midst of her,

Eze 13:2 Son of man,
prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy,
and say thou unto them that prophesy
out of their own hearts,
Hear ye the word of the LORD;

Eze 13:3 Thus saith the Lord GOD;
Woe unto the foolish prophets,
that follow their own spirit,
and have seen nothing!

Eze 13:4 O Israel, thy prophets are like
the foxes in the deserts.

Eze 13:9 And mine hand shall be
upon the prophets that see vanity,
and that divine lies:
they shall not be in the assembly of my people,
neither shall they be written
in the writing of the house of Israel,
neither shall they enter into the land of Israel;
and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.

Eze 13:16 To wit, the prophets of Israel
which prophesy concerning Jerusalem,
and which see visions of peace for her,
and there is no peace, saith the Lord GOD.

Eze 22:25 There is a conspiracy of her prophets
in the midst thereof,
like a roaring lion ravening the prey;
they have devoured souls;
they have taken the treasure and precious things;
they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.

Eze 22:28 And her prophets have daubed them
with untempered morter,
seeing vanity,
and divining lies unto them, saying,
Thus saith the Lord GOD,
when the LORD hath not spoken.

Eze 38:17 Thus saith the Lord GOD;
Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time
by my servants the prophets of Israel,
which prophesied in those days many years
that I would bring thee against them?

unto thy servants the prophets,
which spake in thy name to our kings,
our princes,
and our fathers,
and to all the people of the land.

the voice of the LORD our God,
to walk in his laws,
which he set before us
by his servants the prophets.

Hos 6:5 Therefore have I hewed them
by the prophets;
I have slain them by the words of my mouth:
and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth.

Hos 12:10 I have also spoken
by the prophets,
and I have multiplied visions,
and used similitudes,
by the ministry of the prophets.

Amo 2:11 And I raised up of your sons for prophets,
and of your young men for Nazarites.
Is it not even thus,
O ye children of Israel? saith the LORD.

Amo 2:12 But ye gave the Nazarites wine to drink;
and commanded the prophets,
saying, Prophesy not.

Amo 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing,
but he revealeth his secret
unto his servants the prophets.

Mic 3:5 Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets
that make my people err,
that bite with their teeth,
and cry, Peace;
and he that putteth not into their mouths,
they even prepare war against him.

Mic 3:6 Therefore night shall be unto you,
that ye shall not have a vision;
and it shall be dark unto you,
that ye shall not divine;
and the sun shall go down over the prophets,
and the day shall be dark over them.

Mic 3:11 The heads thereof judge for reward,
and the priests thereof teach for hire,
and the prophets thereof divine for money:
yet will they lean upon the LORD,
and say,
Is not the LORD among us?
none evil can come upon us.

Zep 3:4 Her prophets are light
and treacherous persons:
her priests have polluted the sanctuary,
they have done violence to the law.

Zec 1:4 Be ye not as your fathers,
unto whom the former prophets have cried,
saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts;
Turn ye now from your evil ways,
and from your evil doings:
but they did not hear,
nor hearken unto me, saith the LORD.

Zec 1:5 Your fathers, where are they?
and the prophets, do they live for ever?

Zec 1:6 But my words and my statutes,
which I commanded my servants the prophets,
did they not take hold of your fathers?
and they returned and said,
Like as the LORD of hosts thought to do unto us,
according to our ways,
and according to our doings,
so hath he dealt with us.

Zec 7:3 And to speak unto the priests
which were in the house of the LORD of hosts,
and to the prophets, saying,
Should I weep in the fifth month,
separating myself,
as I have done these so many years?

Zec 7:7 Should ye not hear the words
which the LORD hath cried by the former prophets,
when Jerusalem was inhabited
and in prosperity,
and the cities thereof round about her,
when men inhabited the south and the plain?

Zec 7:12 Yea, they made their hearts
as an adamant stone,
lest they should hear the law,
and the words
which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his spirit
by the former prophets:
therefore came a great wrath
from the LORD of hosts.

Zec 8:9 Thus saith the LORD of hosts;
Let your hands be strong,
ye that hear in these days these words
by the mouth of the prophets,
which were in the day that the foundation of
the house of the LORD of hosts was laid,
that the temple might be built.

Zec 13:2 And it shall come to pass in that day,
saith the LORD of hosts,
that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land,
and they shall no more be remembered:
and also I will cause the prophets
and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.

Zec 13:4 And it shall come to pass in that day,
that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision,
when he hath prophesied;
neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive:
