Micah 3:5

Thus says the LORD: Concerning the prophets who make my people stray, who bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that puts nothing into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.

Ephrem The Syrian

AD 373
“The sun will go down” upon those prophets who lead my people astray, dwelling in darkness. “It will be night for you, without vision, and it will be dark for you, without dawn.” “For, when [the spirit] goes out of a man, it goes about wandering.” It does this quite by nature. [The Lord] rendered this judgment with regard to [the people]: “Thus will it be for this generation.” That is, in the days of the prophets the evil spirit had gone out from them, [that spirit] that was sin itself. Commentary of Tatian’s Diatessaron

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Peace. They pretend goodness, while they do the greatest mischief. Prepare. Literally, "sanctify "(Haydock) or denounce war. (Calmet) False prophets seek their private lucre. (Worthington)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
