From the Jewish Encyclopedia:
Armenia is also mentioned in the Midrashim: "God said, if I let them pass through the deserts, they will die of starvation. Therefore I lead them by the road of Armenia, where they will find cities and fortresses and plenty of provisions" (Lam. R. i. 14). See also Cant. R., Amsterdam ed., p. 198.
I'm looking for the original Hebrew text of this quote.
I have no idea what "Lam. R. i. 14" refers to.
I'm not Jewish. Please forgive my ignorance.
