Elicitation vs. Specification

Could you please help me to understand the difference between Requirements Elicitation and Requirements Specification and how they complete each other?

Simply put, Requirements Elicitation is the act of gathering requirements from users, customers, etc. Requirements Specification can either be an activity or the document itself. Requirements Specification is the act of documenting the requirements, which can be in a document called a Requirements Specification.
