Runes and the spirit

Völuspa

18. Breath they had not,
spirit they had not,
character nor vital spark nor fresh complexions;
breath gave Odin, spirit gave Hænir,
vital spark gave Lodur, and fresh complexions.

63. Then Hænir will choose wooden slips for prophecy,
and the sons of two brothers will inhabit, widely,
the windy world – do you understand yet, or what more?
