,Sunday punctuation, ?

In the chapter "On Reading and Writing" in Thus Spake Zarathustra, Nietzsche writes, "Ich würde nur an einen Gott glauben, der zu tanzen verstünde." (I would only believe in a God that knows how to dance.)

I think that Nietzsche the philologist, and I am confident that, when living, my Grandmother Eleanor, would join me in adding the qualification that this God must also have excellent grammar.
