What's the difference between bond enthalpies vs standard enthalpies of formation?

Bond enthalpy is the amount of energy needed to break a bond, while the standard enthalpy of formation is the amount of energy needed to form a compound, or to create the bond.

Is standard enthalpy of formation based on forming from the gaseous state as well?
